Nadia Barbaro is a Melbourne based fashion stylist, creative director and author.

Nadia’s passion for vintage fashion lead her to create the book Vintage Girls in 2014. Featuring interviews and imagery from leading creative women like musicians Kimbra and Sarah Blasko, to celebrated Mad Men Costume Designer Janie Bryant, ballerina Juliet Burnett, DJ Mia Moretti and filmmaker Liz Goldwyn. Nadia explored how nostalgia and a love of the story behind the clothing was what drew these women to vintage fashion. She revealed how it informed their own personal style and how important it is to celebrate vintage in a time of fast-fashion and mass consumerism. All imagery was created exclusively for this project and featured vintage fashion from the 1930s through to the 1980s. The limited edition signed and numbered book was available at Readings bookstores and gallery bookstores throughout Australia. The eBook for iPads is currently available in the iTunes bookstore as well as on Scribd.
